Copper Roof Shingles


The world is full of copper lovers, and lovers of the copper roof are by no means an exception. There are essentially two different types of copper roof you can buy, there is the solid copper roof that consists solely of sheet copper on your roof. It is very resilient to weathering and will protect your house for decades but it is incredibly costly, as you can imagine. On the other hand, copper roof shingles are made by attached sheets of copper around standard asphalt shingles. All in all, the cost is likely to work out less than a slate roof but once the copper roof shingles have aged and been weathered they will take on the magnificent green look that only copper can create.

Can I use copper roof shingles?

One of the advantages that copper roof shingles offer over other forms of long lasting roofs, especially the solid copper roof, is that the shingles are actually surprisingly light and most roofs and structures can usually cope with the load admirably. As long as you are prepared to pay approximately $4 per square foot (compared to $1 for standard asphalt but up to $15 for solid copper) there is unlikely to be any good reason why you can not use copper roof shingles on your roof.

What kind of life can I expect from copper roof shingles? This is something of a confusing issue. Asphalt roof shingles will normally only last 20 years, but covered in copper sheeting the life of the asphalt shingles can easily be extended to between 30 and 40 years. However, the copper sheet itself will last an average of about 150 years. Obviously the copper roof shingles themselves will only last as long as the asphalt roof shingles that are found underneath the copper.

The cost of copper roof shingles.

Copper roof shingles are by no means a cheap alternative to other styles of roofing but if you like the look of copper and you want a longer life than asphalt shingles can offer then copper roof shingles are an excellent option. The copper sheet doesnt an excellent job of protecting the asphalt shingles underneath effectively giving them an extended life of around 30 to 40 years. The copper sheeting also protects the shingles from most general wear and tear meaning that with good, regular maintenance you wont need to have repairs done too often. On a yearly basis copper roof shingles do work out cheap but not overall and not for the initial installation.

Standard asphalt roof shingles usually cost around $1 per square foot, whereas solid copper roofing will set you back around $15 per square foot. Copper roof shingles are available at approximately $4 to $5 per square foot so they are 4 times more expensive than asphalt but considerably cheaper than a full solid copper roof. However, you are undoubtedly paying for the attractive looks of a copper roof but for less money than covering the entire roof in an expensive metal.

Summer Houses & Log Cabins

Do you want a little hiding place in your garden? What about an extra office space outside? A party room or a playroom for the kids? If you have enough space in your garden , consider buying a summer house or log cabin.

What is the Difference between a Summer House and a Log Cabin?

summer  house

The main difference between garden log cabins and summer houses is the size. Summer houses are more on the smaller side of things while log cabins are usually a little more sturdy and bigger. Log cabins can be a year round option if you have a garden big enough and go for an insulated cabin. Summer houses are mainly for the warmer months as the name suggests.

While log cabins always have a rectangular footprint , summer houses can come in rectangular , hexagonal and corner floor designs. Based on the floor plan , summer houses can have different roof constructions as well and can even look like little pavilions. Corner summer houses are very useful designs that can be fit into garden corners to use up as little space as possible.

Cladding , Roof Types & Special Features

Decide if you need single or double doors , how many windows you want to have , how big they should be and if you would like a veranda for your summer house or log cabin. Next to these little features you have to make decisions about basics like roof structure and cladding.

The simplest form of roof type are flat or pent roofs. Pent roofs are flat roofs that are higher on one end of the summer or garden house , usually the front , to allow rain to run off the roof easily.

Apex roofs are a type of gable roof that have two pitched roof sides that run down on either side of a ridge board. The doors of a log cabin or summer house with an apex roof are on the side of the gable. In the case of a reverse apex roof , the door or doors are on either of the roof sides of the cabin or house.

Hip roofs have a roof side on all four walls of the summer house or garden cabin. In the case of a pyramid roof , all roof sides are triangles. They can be found on summer houses or sheds with a square floor design. A simple hip roof has two triangular sides and two trapezoid sides.

Gazebo roofs are gently tented roofs that can be found on hexagonal summer houses and similar pavilion structures.

Cladding usually comes in two basic varieties: overlap or feather-edge , and tongue & groove. Overlap clad wall constructions have boards that simply overlap one another. Tongue & groove on the other hand has interlocking boards. A special type of tongue and groove cladding is shiplap which is supposed to be the most weather resistant of all three constructions for summer houses and garden cabins.

Decorate your Summer House

Space and your personal taste are the only limits on how to approach interior design for your summer house. Style the windows with curtains , hang up pictures and add ornaments. And , of course , do not forget outdoor cushions , rugs , blankets , a wind chime , outdoor candles and all the other small but important items to add that extra layer of comfort to your little home from home.

Install lights or use lanterns and set up a small table and chairs and maybe a bookcase or bench and your cabin and summer house are all set up for cosy evenings outside in your garden no matter what the weather will be.

Planning Permission for Garden Buildings

Please make sure that you are allowed to set up your dream summer house or log cabin in your garden. For some sites , heights and features like balconies or verandas you might need a permission for garden building like houses , cabins , sheds or garages. Check with the local authorities to make sure you can enjoy your new summer house or log cabin for a long time.

    I did not realise that it was self assembled, "which to be honest is probably my fault". But! I was left with eleven bolts and nuts because the corresponding holes were not in alignment and the product is of poor quality and not worth the price. I have bought from wayfair before and been happy with the product. It boils down to checking the product before you buy if possible otherwise buy where you can check the product first.

    Exactly as described good quality (keter) assembly was easy just a screwdriver and a second pair of hands when fixing the lid on. It now has all the cushions from our corner suite inside of which was impressive.

    Love it. Looks great! Easy to hang with command strips instead of hardware and looks amazing. Probably will be putting some succulents inside. Paired great with the bigger one which you have to buy separate.

    They are great except the screws they come with are kind of thick and make a decent size hole in the wall.

    Needed something not too big for my cushions to store on my screen porch. It is the perfect size and also acts as a small table and is the right height for what I needed it for.

    Love, love, love this bench. It's exactly what I wanted for the courtyard. The care instructions recommended using wax to maintain the wood and suggested not to let bird droppings or leaves sit on it for any length of time which may be more fuss than some people are willing to give their outdoor furniture but wooden outdoor furniture requires extra TLC. If that's too much then let me say it would look beautiful indoors as well.

    I received 4 of these darling Bistro Chairs on Tuesday and when I saw them I ran right upstairs and ordered 2 more chairs. They arrive today. Wow in only 2 days and free shipping on top of that. These chairs are perfect for the dining room of our beach house. When I first ordered the chairs a few weeks ago I wanted blue but after searching the entire web there were no blue ones available so I went with the red and I am so happy I did, fun color makes for a fun look. Pros: Fun, light weight, nice size for a small area, comfortable and very french looking.
